Closeup insects from the Bois Brule River
Female Ephemerellidae (Hendricksons, Sulphurs, PMDs, BWOs) Mayfly Spinner
View 6 PicturesI'm not sure of the species of this female spinner, and unfortunately I never found the associated males or duns to aid in identification. The egg-laying flight and fall of fairly large clouds of these females caused good rises of choosy trout for a week or so around early July on a large, cold spring creek in the northwoods. There is a distinctive stripe down the female's back, identical to that on this specimen collected a month later. Cicadidae (Cicadas) Cicada Adult
View 4 PicturesI found this cicada and several like it in the grass near my car as I put my waders on. Some of them were singing in the trees above the river, too, but I did not see any fall into the water.
